Would you be so kind as to add your photo to the husband's memorial I just created, 140416756?

RE: Benton photo
Hi Ray..

It's rather odd because I'm no longer receiving photo requests either.. I've even changed my zip to neighboring townships and still nothing comes thru and I contacted my internet server to make sure that the Find A Grave requests weren't automatically being deleted as spam and they weren't... hmmm it makes ya wonder why the recent glitch.. So I've just been checking the cemeteries photo requests that are listed and uploading that way.. I'm methodically working my way around the county trying to do entire cemeteries so I don't have to keep going back over and over.. I've completed many of the small country cemeteries in my area and will get started on the BIG ones (the ones with a few thousand folks buried there) next spring.. those will take several days apiece to complete.

I didn't photograph as much as I wanted this past season as my youngest just graduated in June and left for college in Aug so I had lots of mom things to tend to and just couldn't find the time to take on the larger cemeteries.. altho I did do the first few rows at Floral Grove.

I appreciate you getting back to me and there is no rush on the pic for Mary Ann Benton Houtz, I just saw her headstone in Asa's plot photo and thought you might have captured a closer pic of it and wanted to save the photo contributor a trip.

Thanks for all YOU do for this site, you've saved me many miles & many gallons of gas!!

Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday!!

Benton photo
Hi Ray.. I'm writing regarding a photo you took for me some time ago for Asa Benton #59309059.. anyways.. I noticed in Asa's plot photo that his daughter Mary Ann Houtz is buried near the road, just to the right of Asa's plot.. If you look at your photo, you can clearly see the Houtz marker (in the far right of the pic) located next to the Spratt marker.. so I was wondering if you happened to have any other photos that might show this Houtz marker more clearly?? I had put in a photo request for Mary Ann's marker but I thought if you already had a photo that I would just remove my request..

Thanks for all you do!! Your efforts are greatly appreciated..
